Aparium Hotel Group Announces The Foundation Hotel in Detroit

Aparium Hotel Group today announced plans to reimagine, renovate and redevelop the historic Detroit Fire Department Headquarters into a 100-room upscale independent hotel. Together with established Detroit developer Walter Cohen, Aparium is set to embark on a $28 million project that will transform the one-of-a-kind space into a truly original hotel with a “Detroit State of Mind” and a deep appreciation for Detroit’s past and a celebration of its promising future.


Scheduled to open in late 2015, Aparium will be responsible for the positioning, pre-opening and ongoing management of the property named The Foundation Hotel. This property represents the fourth consecutive and locally relevant hotel project for the newly formed Aparium Hotel Group by hospitality veterans Kevin Robinson and Mario Tricoci.
